Synopsis

What in the world is a weed? The dictionary will tell you it is a plant out of place. In The Wonderous World of Weeds you will discover that the perceived weeds that grow around us hold special significance and wonderful medicinal values. We have plants growing all around us that have so much culinary and holistic potential and can be used as teas, poultices, compresses and ointments along with syrup and lozenges. Their medical uses can help relieve itches, get rid of cold sores or help with coughs and colds. Weeds also have culinary uses so there are recipes included. They are also great companions in the garden for vegetables, fruit trees and flowers and they can tell you about the quality of your soil. The Wonderous World of Weeds will feature 100 common world-wide weeds and each plant will include: a full description and identification together with a photograph; distribution i.e. where they typically grow; a list of their common names; what uses they have; what medicinal value they have; when to harvest them; recipes - whether it be culinary, medicinal or both.

Pat Collins was brought up on dairy farms where she developed her deep love of the land and the understanding of nature's laws. Her dearest memories of her youth are her barefoot hikes around the sandstone hills with the farm dogs and the rich smell of wattle in the air. Her weed workshop is one of her most popular ones as Pat loves to share her extensive knowledge of useful weeds that grow in your area. At home she collects her weeds to make many of her medicines that she uses at her practice.
